This summer I’m experimenting with treating my family and grandchildren to homemade ice cream, made with real food! It all started when I bought this Crofton Ice Cream Maker that Aldi had on sale for $19.99.
Several summers ago we had an exceptionally hot summer here in New England. Every night we would go to our favorite local, family-owned ice cream shop for an after-dinner treat. I like to think it was almost akin to the old Howard Johnson’s Restaurants, where I tried their famous 28 flavors!
(And probably put on 28 pounds over that summer too!)
Ice Cream Maker Reviews
Amazingly, I’ve never owned an ice cream maker or frozen yogurt maker in all the years I’ve been married, so I thought that the Crofton Ice Cream Maker that Aldi had on sale for $19.99 was a reasonable price to get me started with making homemade ice cream recipes.
Crofton Ice Cream Maker
- Makes 1.06 quarts in approximately 45 minutes
- No ice or salt needed, easy to operate
- Has a transparent lid for easy monitoring of ice cream consistency
- Clear cover with ingredient feeder allows for candies or fruits to be added during the mixing process
- Ice Cream Maker Instruction Manual

It’s recommended that the bowl be frozen in your freezer for 12 to 24 hours in advance of preparing the ice cream base.
I had picked up some fresh Rhubarb fruit at one of my favorite local fresh farm stands here in Connecticut. We like to have Rhubarb Cobbler and Strawberry and Rhubarb pies all summer long. Since I’ve been doing a lot of freezer cooking and freezer meals, I chopped up the Rhubarb and froze it in quart-size bags.
